Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: Stylish Flip Video CamCorder


Even in a sea of sea of HD-recording smartphones the Flip line of video cameras still reigns supreme as the easy-to-use, affordable pocket camcorder. The cameras shoot high quality video, make editing easy and, perhaps best of all, let you capture memories without running down your phone’s battery.

Over the last few years the Flip line of cameras has added something else: STYLE. You can now get the cameras with a variety of designs… All of which makes them a great gift for the person you love this coming Valentines Day.

It gets even better though. You can now give a totally personalized Flip video camcorder by designing the outside of the camcorder with words or pictures that YOU choose.

So, for example, Kev could get this camera for Judie to use on her upcoming trip to Barcelona.

In addition

The all-new Flip UltraHD and MinoHD video cameras feature the familiar Flip Video simplicity, with newly enhanced HD video quality and image stabilization. The FlipShare software built into every Flip camcorder lets you save, edit and share videos on your own FlipShare channel, or with easy uploads to Facebook, YouTube, AOL and other video sharing sites.

The Flipshare software now also features a quick and easy video greeting card option with dozens of all-new designs including Valentine’s Day, so not only can you give a Flip for Valentine’s Day, you can also send a Flip Video Greeting Card. Once a user selects their greeting card design, they can enter their own personal message to go along with the accompanying video. The video greeting card is then easily sent by email to a single recipient, or small to large groups with the new FlipShare contacts feature.
